Today, our party has been repositioned to greater height and I can assure you with calibre of people so selected by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to pilot the leadership of this party into the National Convention.
“I feel indeed grateful and reassure that our party will remain strong and stronger and come out from the crisis which we were all in the past few months better than where before. I am more grateful to the members of our party and decision of NEC.
“All immediate past NWC should be able to learn from our mistakes, including my humble self, to join hand with the Caretaker Committee to see how they strengthen the party.
